At IAA Commercial Vehicles 2016, telematics provider Daimler FleetBoard will present the new FleetBoard store for apps. It was deliberately conceived as an open platform to offer partners in the sector the opportunity to contribute useful apps for everyone involved in the transport industry, thereby improving the overall efficiency of road freight transport. Here, customers will now be able to find Truck Parking Europe.
The app shows truck drivers across Europe the best, most secure and available parking areas for trucks along their route. This saves time, enables efficient planning of rest periods and improves truck drivers’ safety. The parking options can be rated by the community of over 250,000 European truck drivers.
FleetBoard customers can simply search for the Truck Parking Europe app from their work station and send it “over the air” to their fleet – to individual trucks, multiple trucks or the even the entire fleet, as they wish. The truck driver accesses the available apps using the driver tablet, the FleetBoard DispoPilot.guide. “With Truck Parking Europe, we support truck drivers every day. The collaboration with Daimler FleetBoard takes us further in increasing the efficiency of the logistics sector,” comments Niels de Zwaan, Managing Director Truck Parking Europe. All apps offered in the Fleetboard store undergo a quality assurance process, ensuring that they meet FleetBoard’s high security standards.
